Let's come together and grant some wishes! Every year, Beaverton CrossFit hosts its annual Wishing on a WOD event to benefit the Make-A-Wish® of Oregon’s Season of Wishes. This is our 9th year and over the lifetime of the event our community has raised over $158k and granted over 28 wishes. That only happens because of people like you.
Make-A-Wish Oregon granted 260 wishes last year. Their mission is to create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Wishes generally fall into four categories: I wish to go, I wish to be, I wish to meet, or I wish to have.
Wishes are more than just a nice thing. And they are far more than gifts, or singular events in time. Wishes impact everyone involved - wish kids, volunteers, donors, sponsors, medical professionals and communities. The impact varies. For wish kids, just the act of making their wish come true can give them the courage to comply with their medical treatments. Parents might finally feel like they can be optimistic. And still others might realize all they have to offer the world through volunteer work or philanthropy.
This is where you and Wishing on a WOD come in. This event involves sweat, tears and a sense of pride and love that is only achieved from coming together to support the children in our community. We all have something to be thankful for this holiday season and this is a way to give back to our community in a big way. Please join us Saturday, December 1st - get your family and friends to sponsor you per round, come WOD with us and give the gift of a wish to a child fighting for their health.
Whatever the odds, whatever the obstacles ... wishes find a way to make the world better. Please help by contributing any amount you can - $30, $50, $100 or even more. Every dollar you donate can help Make-A-Wish kids renew their courage and find a turning point in their lives.
Thank you for your support!
